Journal of Biological Sciences and Medicine https://jbscim.com/index.php/jbsm <p>The “<strong><em>Journal of Biological Sciences and Medicine</em></strong>” (JBSM) is an international open access journal in English published quarterly. The aim of JBSM is to publish rapid and peer reviewed original research articles, scientific reports, review and mini-reviews in the developing and interdisciplinary field of biological, environmental and medical sciences. We welcome original research papers covering all aspects of modern biology for publication in our journal. Aspiring young scientists, medical professionals and researchers especially in the field of biology, biomedicine, environmental sciences, agricultural sciences, forestry, biotechnology etc., are wholeheartedly encouraged to submit their valuable contributions.</p> <p>Journal of Biological Sciences and Medicine welcomes original, unpublished research papers which includes critical analysis of any aspect of all subjects from the faculty members, graduate students, independent researchers, and writers from all over the world. The scope of the journal is wide open to the International arena.</p> Journal of Biological Sciences and Medicine en-US Journal of Biological Sciences and Medicine 2455-5266 <p>Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms:</p> <ol> <li>Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a&nbsp;<a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0">Creative Commons Attribution License</a>&nbsp;that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgement of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.</li> <li>Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.</li> <li>Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See&nbsp;<a href="http://opcit.eprints.org/oacitation-biblio.html" target="_new">The Effect of Open Access</a>).</li> </ol> Preventive Measures and Sustainable Practices for Insect Breeding https://jbscim.com/index.php/jbsm/article/view/133 <p class="Abstract" style="text-align: justify; line-height: 200%;"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; line-height: 200%; font-family: 'Times New Roman',serif;" lang="EN-US">From steak to pork, chicken to fish, an animal protein often takes center stage at Thailand’s dinner table, however as resources shrink and population grows day by day, it is time to look for new sustainable food to consider for a better living and future. Insects are a super-food compared to an equivalent amount of beef or chicken, so when we are thinking about the mankind which is diminishing its resources and mounting its human population, the insects are very well positioned to be a great source of protein and micronutrients. They acquire drastically less land, water, and feed; can be produced all-year-round with better breeding practices in farms. There is tremendous potential for this to become an industry because by the year 2050, the world will be home to more than nine billion people to feed. The present study suggested three molecular techniques including DNA barcoding, genotyping, and pathogen examination to assist insect breeders for sustainable breeding practices.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> Yash Munnalal Gupta Somjit Homchan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-31 2019-12-31 5 4 1 4 Risks of sulphur dioxide inhalation on serum protein level of albino rats https://jbscim.com/index.php/jbsm/article/view/134 <p>Sulphur dioxide is a hydrophilic gas and is mainly absorbed in the body through the epithelium of the upper respiratory tract from where it gets further absorbed and enters into the bloodstream. In the present study, albino rats were exposed to different concentration of sulphur gas and assessed the effect on serum protein level. The findings reveal that serum protein concentration decrease significantly after 4 week exposure to 120 ppm of sulphur dioxide.</p> Firdaus Fatma Sandeep Asthana Ravi S Pandey ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-31 2019-12-31 5 4 5 8 Air pollution and its impact on human Health in India: A Review https://jbscim.com/index.php/jbsm/article/view/135 <p>Air pollution in India is one of the most serious health issue. Air pollution contributes to the premature deaths of 2 million Indians every year. In the present study is designed to find out the highest annual levels of air pollution and its adverse effects on human health in India. Emissions come from vehicles and industry, whereas in rural areas, much of the pollution stems from biomass burning for cooking and keeping warm. In autumn and winter months, large scale crop residue burning in agriculture fields, is a major source of smoke, smog and particulate pollution.</p> Zeba Khan Rashmi Srivastava ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-12-31 2019-12-31 5 4 9 12
